At 12 pt your text will be about one 6th of an inch high. If you look at the 
unevenness at the baselines compared to the total text height then I'd say it 
doesn't amount to much. A 600 dpi printer will use only 100 dot vertically to 
print the tallest letters. Could the unevenness be the result of your printer 
having to make a choice between print or no print in the marginal areas?
Could this problem be exagerated by the scanning process having to make a 
similar choice? 

just thoughts
